Sometimes it's the little things that make us feel secure, like an old friend at bedtime, money saved for a rainy day, or matching coffee mugs. But, there are times when these small comforts are up against big challenges.

Mary Alice: No matter who we are, we all experience moments of dread. When we ask ourselves: Will anyone believe I'm innocent? Will my daughter be a child of divorce? Will this man break my heart? Are there things that go bump in the night? And sometimes, the answer is yes.

Carlos: Stop pouting. It's fun to sleep outside.
Gaby: I'm sure it is. That must be why the homeless are always so cheery.

Chuck: I'm sure you want to avoid another mistake like your second husband, the hit-and-run driver. Orson, was it?
Bree: What?
Chuck: Tell me who was creepier... him or the pharmacist who killed himself while you were dating?

You found something bad? Is he a dirty cop...or a Democrat?

Bree

Renee: I never date a guy until I've done a complete background check.
Bree: Maybe I'll just Google him.
Renee: Amateur.

Susan: I promise no feather duster and no purple bra.
Principal Hobson: And no bustier... Nice talking to you.

No matter how secure we are, we all experience moments of dread. It may be just before we open our credit card bill or hand over a note to our teacher or step on the scale after a week away from the gym. Yes, we all experience moments of dread. And sometimes, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Mary Alice

People do good deeds for many reasons, but sometimes good deeds have bad consequences. Correcting a colleague's mistake could breed resentment. Opening one's home to a friend can damage that friendship. Trying to bring a spouse closer might push her further away. That's why there's an old expression about helping people - No good deed goes unpunished.

Mary Alice

Lynette, you did a great job ignoring what he asked for. All that's missing is an antique jar for Tom to put his testicles in.

Renee

Gaby: Girls, no running.
Bree: Is that all you're going to do?
Gaby: Of course not. Next time, I'll trip one of them.

Good deeds aren't always done for the purest of reasons. We may be trying to impress. We may be acting out of guilt. We may be expecting something in return, but occasionally a good deed comes straight from the heart.
